They co«ld help you noufgettmg stuck in the'middleof nowhere." Shell suggests 10 ways to reduce your chances of getting stranded when youVe miles from help 1. Make your own roadside emergency kit and always carry it in your trunk. It could save you a lot of trouble someday, ^our kit should include: a spare fan belt, a strong tow rope, a gallon can of water, a flashlight with extra batteries, pliers, screwdriver, and several wicnches. 2. Check both your spare tire and jack, A flat tire is usually more annoying than serious. But it can leave you stranded if your spare is flat or your jack doesn't work. So always have the air pressure in your spare checked at the same time as the rest of your tires. And make sure your jack is in good working order. 3. Find out where your car fuses are located. Your car has fuses that do the same job as the ones in your home. And they're just as easy to replace if you know where to find them. So have your Shell dealer show you where each fuse is. And carry extra luses in your glove compartment. 4. Hide a spare ignition key in your car. 11 you've ever lost your keys in the back country, you know how important this is. Be sure that even,one who drives your car knows whore the extra kev is hidden. 5. Check for the three troubles that cause nearly half of all breakdowns. The American Automobile Association reports that tires, weak batteries, and faulty electrical svMcms account lor 45 peaent of all car breakdowns. So have your Shell dealer check all three frequently. 6. Don't plow through water. I lere's a good rule to follow, i/ there's thc slightest chance tliat the water is deep enough to reach your tailpipe, turn your car around, and look for nn alternate route. This may take you a few miles out of your way, but it's better than stalling in water. EXTREMELY IMPORTANT: Test your brakes after driving through water. Even a few inches of water can cause temporary brake failure. If this happens, drive with extreme caution until the brake linings dry. 7. Don't Irt your gas tank get below half full in lonely country. Americans ran out of gas more than 2 million times last year. If you know you'll be driving in a remote area, (ill up before you get to it. And check your gas gauge regularly in isolated country. It can be a long way between service stations. 8. Try these tips if a stuck wheel nut keeps you from changing a tire. a) Make sure you're turning the lug wrench the right way- Some cars have right-hand threads. Others have left- hand threads. And they're not always clearly marked. b) Give a stuck nut a few sharp raps with a hammer or rock. (Be careful not to hit any exposed lug threads). Then try the wrench again. 11 the nut still re- luses to budge, try turning the wrench with a sudden siiii^>/»g motion. 9. Try "rocking out" when you're stuck in mud or sand. Put the cai in reverse and apply power gently. As soon as the wheels start to spin, reduce power and shift into iurwarti gear. Ease forward until the wheels spin again. With each back and forth rock, your car should go a little further—until you're out of trouble. 10. If "rocking out" doesn't work, build a pathway of sticks. Place sticks or branches in front of and under the rear wheels. Start the car forward slowly, and gradually increase speed. By the time you reach the end of your path, you should have enough momentum to carry you forward. Super Shell's 9 ingredients for top performance TCP*—for power, mileage, longer plug life.
